CGM Conversion via C# .NET


Converting a CGM file to an Image in Java can be done in two easy steps. The first step is to use the Aspose.PDF for Java API, which is part of the Aspose.Total for Java package. This API allows you to export CGM files to JPEG format. The second step is to use the Aspose.Imaging for Java Image Processing API to render the JPEG file to an Image.

Aspose.PDF for Java is a powerful PDF manipulation API that enables developers to create, edit, convert, and manipulate PDF documents. It supports a wide range of features, including the ability to export CGM files to JPEG format. Aspose.Imaging for Java is an image processing API that enables developers to create, edit, and manipulate images. It supports a wide range of image formats, including IMAGE, and provides a comprehensive set of features for image manipulation.

Using the Aspose.PDF for Java and Aspose.Imaging for Java APIs, developers can easily convert CGM files to Images in Java. The Aspose.Total for Java package provides both APIs, making it easy to access the features of both APIs in one package. With the help of these APIs, developers can quickly and easily convert CGM files to Images in Java.

Export CGM to IMAGE via Java

  1. Open CGM file using Document class
  2. Initialize class object and render CGM to JPEG by using Process method
  3. Load JPEG file by using Image class
  4. Save the document to JPEG2000 format using save method

Conversion Requirements

You can easily use Aspose.Total for Java directly from a Maven based project and include libraries in your pom.xml.

Alternatively, you can get a ZIP file from downloads .

Convert CGM to IMAGE in a Single File via Java

The API also allows you to export CGM file to IMAGE to a single file. In order to convert all pages, you can first render your CGM document to one TIFF file and after that, you can export the TIFF file to IMAGE. You can open the input file using Document class and create Resolution, TiffSettings, & TIFF device objects. You can get a single TIFF image using process method of TiffDevice class. Finally, you can load TIFF file using Image class and save it to JPEG2000 format using save method.

Convert CGM to IMAGE With Watermark via Java

Using the API, you can also export CGM file to IMAGE with watermark in your IMAGE document. In order to add a watermark to you can first convert CGM to JPEG and add a watermark in it. In order to add watermark, load an image file using the Image class, create an object of the Graphics class and initialize it with Image object, create a new Matrix object and set translation and transformation to the desired angle and add watermark using Graphics.drawString method. After adding the watermark in your image, you can save the JPEG as JPEG2000 format.

Convert & Rotate CGM to IMAGE File via Java

Using the API, you can also rotate the output Image as per your needs. The Image.rotateFlip method can be used to rotate the image by 90/180/270-degrees and flip the image horizontally or vertically. The library provides simple methods to perform complex operations while encapsulating all ugly details. You can specify the type of rotation and flip to apply to the image. In order to rotate and flip the image, you can load the converted JPEG image using the Image class and call the Image.rotateFlip method while specifying the appropriate RotateFlipType .

What is CGM File Format?

A Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) is a file format for 2D vector graphics, raster graphics, and text, and is defined by ISO/IEC 8632. CGM files may contain 2D vector graphics, raster graphics, and text. All aspects of the graphics can be stored, including color palettes, line widths, fonts, and text size and location. CGM files usually have a .cgm filename extension, but they may also use .cgi, .cgmz, or .cgz.CGM is a platform-independent file format, meaning that it can be used on any type of computer, regardless of the operating system. CGM files are often used for vector graphics because they can be scaled without losing quality. CGM files are also used for technical drawings, such as engineering diagrams, because they can be accurately printed at any size.CGM files can be created by a wide variety of software programs, including vector graphics editors, CAD programs, and word processors. Many programs that can export to CGM format also support importing CGM files.

What is IMAGE File Format?

Image files are computer files specifically designed to store digital images. These files come in various types, such as bitmap, JPEG, GIF, and TIFF, each with its own characteristics and applications. The file type determines the software program used to open and view the image.

Bitmap files, also known as raster images, consist of a grid of individual pixels, each assigned a specific color value. When viewed from a distance, these pixels blend together to create a cohesive image. Bitmap files tend to be large in size due to the amount of detailed information they contain.

JPEG files are compressed image files that utilize a mathematical algorithm to reduce file size while preserving image quality. This makes them ideal for storing and sharing photos online, as they can be efficiently compressed without significant loss of quality.

GIF files, another type of compressed image format, employ a different algorithm than JPEG. GIF files can store more colors and produce better image quality, but they are limited to a maximum of 256 colors, making them less suitable for storing high-quality images. GIF files are commonly used for animated images and simple graphics.

TIFF files, on the other hand, are uncompressed image files. They do not utilize any compression algorithms, resulting in larger file sizes compared to other image formats. TIFF files are typically used for storing high-quality images that require editing or printing.

Each image file format serves different purposes and is suited for specific use cases. Bitmap files are detailed but large, JPEG files offer efficient compression, GIF files are suitable for animations and simple graphics, and TIFF files provide uncompressed, high-quality images.
